The architect of record for the Roman and Williams–designed Tin Building recently expanded their footprint at Jean Georges’ culinary hotspot at the South Street Seaport. Founding principal Cass Calder Smith was joined by design principal Taylor Lawson and project architect Yvonne Choy in creating a site-specific exhibition for Barbara Mensch’s collection of Seaport photography. An expansive catalog of black and white photography dating back to 1880 shows off the site’s history to those who have come to enjoy its present.
For his latest launch, the Cincinnati-based furniture maker drew inspiration from the virtuosic sculptor Constantin Brancusi and the interdisciplinary prowess of painter Lucio Fontana. The Silt mirror, executed in patinated brass, first seems to center the viewer in a dreamy vignette before swallowing them into a cavernous void that erupts from the midpoint.
Executive creative director Jo Annah Kornak collaborated with founder Holly Hunt on HH40: an 18-piece collection spanning a sofa, lounge and dining chairs, tables, bedroom furniture, a chandelier, a pendant and sconces, all in celebration of the furniture brand’s 40th anniversary. Several key pieces, including the Torus pendant and High Tide side table, pay homage to the ebb and flow of water; others, like the Strata chandelier and Déjà Vu dining table, are a study in angular geometry.
The Los Angeles firm has transformed a century-old brick building downtown into The Art Room, an all-day café, bar, and art gallery. The kicker? AUX’s offices are just upstairs from the space, which was the recipient of a restaurant design award from AIA Los Angeles.
The firm’s furniture line was already a Surface favorite, and recently expanded to include the Workshop Collection of sleek, modern, and thoughtfully created staples for any room. See the full edit in person, by appointment, at the brand’s purpose-built showroom in Manhattan.
A standard-bearer among those with an affinity for records and sleekness of form, Wrensilva’s latest launch, The Standard in Teak console, is aptly named. The Sonos-compatible piece features warm white speakers, storage for up to 135 albums, inputs for cassette decks and cable boxes, as well as a super limited-edition run of only 100.
A limited-edition revival of an archival light fixture designed by founder Josh Neretin, the Heirloom Sling pendant combines such tactile materials as leather, blown glass, and brass to striking effect.
The master of timeless furnishings has expanded the footprint of Danish design excellence by opening a second New York City flagship. Located within Midtown’s historic Hammacher Schlemmer Building, the new outpost brings even more works by the likes of Hans J. Wegner, Kaare Klint, Poul Kjærholm, Arne Jacobsen, and Børge Mogensen to life across three expansive floors.
With the newly -updated Apollo collection, Saint-Louis seems to ask: Iis there any better pairing than exceptional tea and fine crystal? The 436-year-old maison tapped tea sommelier Lydia Gautier for its “‘Great”’ and “‘Charming”’ tea service sets made from porcelain and crystal, as well as a crystal espresso tumbler for the unswayable coffee connoisseurs.
The Austrian product design studio’s latest launch for BuzziSpace defies easy categorization. The new, larger iteration of the air-suspended BuzziPleat is called BuzziPleat Edel Long. For the acoustic and lighting series, the designers make use of BuzziFelt, made from upcycled plastic bottles, integrating overhead lighting to gently illuminate the expertly pleated felt.
